This is the perfect place to reconnect with nature. There is a large, fairly easy path to walk with other less defined paths as offshoots to take to different destinations. You may even run into some very friendly dogs and their owners along the paths.

My husband and I decided to explore the Gloucester area, and was told we should definitely go to Ravenswood Park. I am glad we decided to visit in the morning hours, because there is limited parking. The main path is wide and cleared nicely. I...More
